Charges filed for suggesting a Nobel prize go to HessBreaking News
Police in the eastern city of Jena said on Friday they had filed the charge against Udo Voigt, head of the National Democratic Party (NPD), after he proposed the late Rudolf Hess for the prestigious award during a speech last weekend.
If convicted of incitement, Voigt could face a jail term of up to three years or a fine, police said.
Voigt made the comment in Jena last Saturday as he marked the 20th anniversary of the death of Hess.

A pertinet piece of data left out was that in 1941 Hess flew to England to negotiat a peace deal and was put in jail for his trouble. Now as to whether that was his true motivation I am uncertain but it should have been mentioned in the artical to give much needed context.
